What is PDN?

PDN stands for Physiology, Development and Neuroscience. Research in PDN is primarily in four major areas: Cellular and systems physiology, Developmental and reproductive biology, Form and function and Neuroscience.

The Department of PDN provides Preclinical Teaching in Anatomy and Physiology for both the Medical and Veterinary Sciences Triposes and also contributes to the Natural Sciences Tripos in the areas of Physiology, Developmental Biology, and Neuroscience.

Please be aware that due to on-going restrictions around the current COVID-19 pandemic, access to physical spaces such as libraries is currently limited. For an overview of what services are currently available to members of the University, please visit the Library Services during COVID-19 tab within this guide. 

For help and support with anything related to the PDN Library, or any of the courses that it supports, please email George Cronin (Deputy Librarian for Biological Sciences) using the library's email address: pdn@lib.cam.ac.uk
